Each year there is a time when the NFL teams play several scrimage games before the actual championship. Such a match between the Arizona Cardinals and the Dallas Cowboys served as a good start to the lengthy August list of candidates. The preseason games are important. They are more than just scores. They serve as a fine tuning process when the time comes to take the field in September. Furthermore, the league sees matches all year round, while the footballers fight for their jobs.
The preseason starts in the last week of each training camp. Here is a part of the schedule for the NFL preseason week 1:
August 9, 2017
Houston Texans vs. Carolina Panthers
August 10, 2017
Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New York Giants
San Francisco 49ers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
August 12, 2017
Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Rams
August 13, 2017
Detroit Lions vs. Indianapolis Colts
Seattle Seahawks vs. Los Angeles Chargers
BET-IBC is glad to share with you some of the odds that Sbobet released for the NFL preseason 2017 here:
Special attention should be played for the game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs. The 49ers need to be more attentive on the defensive and that’s why they signed up Solomon Thomas and linebacker Reuben Foster. Luckily, Kansas City does not have any quarterback dramas to make things hard. Patrick Mahomes could make some headlines, play strong and rebuild the defense. Few teams have as much riding on rookies over the next few years as these two, making it one of the opening week’s must-see acts.
On the Cowboys vs the Rams front, both teams are strong. The Cowboys received encouraging performances from Brice Butler that managed two receptions for 78 yards, while Rod Smith counted 18 carries for 64 yards. The Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said:
“As a player, you learn so much more in game situations than in any other environment. There’s nothing like putting on a uniform and going on a real football field and playing versus an opponent.”
The entire preseason context is for the teams to modify their rosters to the best possible configuration. Some transfers may prove useful. Some other may not. However, this is the point of the exercise. Get those players that you think they will serve your plans the best.
